Frontal Impact takes place at 64 Km/h, 40% of the width of the car striking a deformable barrier.
In the side impact, a mobile deformable barrier impacts the driver's door at 50 km/h.
In the pole test, the car tested is propelled sideways at 29km/h into a rigid pole.

NHTSA NCAP Frontal Impact:
Overall: 5 Stars
Frontal: 4 Stars
Side: 5 Stars
Rollover: 5 Stars
Crash test dummies representing an average-sized adult
male and a small-sized adult female are placed in the
driver and front passenger seats, respectively, and are
secured with seat belts. Vehicles are crashed into a fixed
barrier at 35 mph (56.3km/h), which is equivalent to a
head-on collision between two similar vehicles each moving
at 35 mph.

2012 Acura TSX/Honda Accord Euro IIHS Narrow/Small Overlap Frontal Offset (Marginal Rating)
The Acura TSX was redesigned for the 2009 model year. Two tests of the TSX
were conducted because the onboard (car interior) cameras failed during the
first test. Also in the first test, the driver side curtain and side thorax
airbags deployed, but they did not in the second test. Honda subsequently
provided data showing that the side airbags are close to their deployment
threshold under the small overlap test conditions. The restraints and dummy
kinematics rating is based on the second test. Injury and structural
ratings are based on both tests.
Structure — The driver space was not maintained well. The lower part of
the door hinge pillar was pushed in toward the driver 23 cm, while the
instrument panel intruded as much as 17 cm.
Restraints/dummy kinematics — In the second test, the dummy's head
contacted the frontal airbag but slid off the left side, leaving the head
vulnerable to contact with forward side structure. Neither the side curtain
nor side torso airbags deployed, leaving the dummy's head and chest
vulnerable to contact with side structure and outside objects.
Injury measures — Measures from the dummies in the two tests, taken
together, indicate that injuries to the left lower leg, ankle, and heel
would be likely in a crash of this severity. The risk of significant
injuries to other body regions is low.

Crash Test 2008 Audi A4 ( Full Test ) EuroNcap
There was negligible distortion of the passenger compartment in the frontal
test. Adapative airbags and seatbelts tailor the timing and the degree of
restraint to suit the size of the occupant and the severity of the impact.
In this case, the both the driver and passenger were well protected.
The A4 scored maximum points in the side impact and pole tests.
The A4 scored maximum points for its protection of the 1½ year old infant
and the 3 year old child based on dummy responses in the full scale tests.
There was no label clearly warning of the dangers of using a
rearward-facing child restraint in the front passenger seat but the
presence of ISOFIX markings was clearly indicated in the rear outboard
The bumper scored maximum points for its protection of pedestrians' legs
but the front edge of the bonnet scored none. The bonnet was rated as
predominantly poor for the protection it offered to the head of a struck
